Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' 3D Blu-ray presentation is delivered in mouth-watering 1080p video and is presented in what is, roughly, a 2.35:1 aspect ratio that replicates the film's original scope presentation. Note that Blu-ray.com's aspect ratio calculator measures the presentation at 2.29:1, whereas the original 2D-only release clocks in at 2.35:1; the slight alteration can likely be attributed to necessary tweaks in transferring the film to Blu-ray with its 3D elements intact. As for the image quality proper, is it any surprise that it's a joy to behold? Even the Columbia Pictures logo at the beginning of the film proves breathtaking. Colors dazzle, detail is amazingly intricate, and even a lens flare around the figure seems to add a bit of dimension to the 3D image.

Of course, the transfer's strengths lie in its amazing sense of depth and fantastic detailing. The image is more about space than it is poking the audience in the eye, and while it does offer the occasional shot that contains elements that seem to be floating out in front of the screen, the image impresses the most simply by creating a seamless sense of dimension throughout the film. It's easy to get a feel for just how much room there likely is between objects; a shot featuring Flint and his father speaking in front of the tackle shop, for instance, is a perfect showcase. It's a rather mundane shot, but such are the bread-and-butter of the 3D process, turning the ordinary into something that's awfully lifelike in the way the audience can appreciably gauge the distance between the characters and the building. Such is the norm throughout the film; there are a few deliberately flat images -- notably newscasts that are shown on the screen of a standard 2D television -- but the bulk of the film enjoys some incredible depth of field that's wonderfully seamless with only a couple of blatant instances of ghosting where the image doesn't quite mesh.

Detail is terrific; it appears to be on about the same level as the 2D version, but colors do appear slightly less vibrant here. As to the latter, however, that seems pretty standard across the 3D board; a recent RealD 3D theatrical viewing of Shrek Forever After 3D appeared particularly dim, and Monsters vs. Aliens' home 3D Blu-ray presentation, too, seemed just slightly less vibrant than its 2D counterpart. As for those scenes that offer the best 3D "pop," two that spring to mind are Flint's mishap with the FLDSMDFR as he puts a damper on the mayor's ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly-minted Sardine Land, and a brief shot featuring a look at bacon at what appears to be the molecular level in chapter 10. All told, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is a visual wonder on Blu-ray 3D; it will be interesting to see how the two slightly older films Sony is soon to release will look in 3D, as will it be intriguing to examine the technical attributes of this summer's brand-new crop of 3D films (notably the aforementioned Shrek, The Last Airbender, and Toy Story 3) as they (hopefully) arrive on 3D Blu-ray later in the year. Note that all screenshots in this review were captured directly from the 2D version of the film found on the 3D disc.


Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The most obvious leap forward from Monsters vs. Aliens to Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is the inclusion of lossless soundtrack options, here in English, French, and Portuguese. The tracks seem to be carried over from the previous release, and that's just fine. It's a winner -- an easy five then, an easy five now -- and it's the perfect accompaniment to the 3D version's stellar visuals. This is a rich and zesty presentation, a delicious concoction that's wonderfully balanced and wholly satisfying. The track pushes the sound system hard in several places, not only delivering a wide array of surround information but pounding out some tight and precise bass, with special mention going to the scrumptiously gelatinous and bouncy lows that accompany the "house of Jell-O" sequence. Sound effects and music both are superbly balanced, the former coming through with precise imaging and generating some wonderfully discrete elements that truly draw the listener into the mayhem, while the latter is amazingly crisp and free-flowing, the perfect presentation of Composer Mark Mothersbaugh's (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist) score that's a wonderful combination of exciting, smooth, and epic notes. Spacing is wonderful; the speakers seem to vanish for that perfect 360-degree presentation. Dialogue is smooth and precise across the entire range of distinctive characters. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' lossless soundtrack is a winner.
